ARC Review: Taken At Dusk (Shadow Falls, #3) by C.C. Hunter

Step into author C.C. Hunter's spectacular Shadow Falls series with Taken at Dusk, and enter into the camp for teens with supernatural powers. Here friendship thrives, love takes you by surprise, and our hearts possess the greatest magic of all.

Kylie Galen wants the truth so badly she can taste it. The truth about who her real family is, the truth about which boy she’s meant to be with—and the truth about what her emerging powers mean. But she’s about to discover that some secrets can change your life forever…and not always for the better.

Just when she and Lucas are finally getting close, she learns that his pack has forbidden them from being together. Was it a mistake to pick him over Derek? And it’s not just romance troubling Kylie. An amnesia-stricken ghost is haunting her, delivering the frightful warning, someone lives and someone dies. As Kylie races to unravel the mystery and protect those she loves, she finally unlocks the truth about her supernatural identity, which is far different—and more astonishing—than she ever imagined.

Hunter has done it yet again! This is an author after my own heart. Shadow Falls really is a series that's jammed packed with just about every paranormal element and romantic triangle twist that readers could ever hope for. Our main character Kylie is going to catch a break anytime soon if Hunter has anything to say about it. Readers will once again be thrust right into the thick of all the problems and chaos reigning down around Kylie and her friends. Mario and Red are still out to get her, Lucas and Derek are still fighting over her, and she's no closer to finding out who or what she is exactly.

I thought after leaving off at the end of the last book, that maybe things would slow down coming into the third installment, but Hunter proved me wrong. She maintained the same fast pace, action packed plot that readers and fans of this series have come to expect. While a lot of the same problems still surround Kylie, new ones have popped up too, like an ex-girlfriend of one of her love interests, and boy did my heart go out to her over that whole situation. Yikes! All I can say is that she's a lot tougher than I think I would be, and handled things a lot better than I would have been able to. Hunter writes fun and endearing characters, but they're also strong and formidable at the same time. They're characters that readers can relate to while also looking up to them and their high moral codes.

While Kylie still has her hands full in this third installment, she certainly has enough good friends and family to support her and be there for her the whole way through. If you're a fan of this series, your excitement and love for this series can only grow with this latest installment. Now all that's left is to yet again start the countdown to the release of Hunter's fourth installment in the Shadow Falls we go again!

I gave Taken At Dusk (Shadow Falls, #3) 4 shamrocks!!!!
